Summary:

This is certainly one of the cleaner 1940's L-7's we have seen come through the shop. While this was not refinished there is very little play wear anywhere on this guitar.

Neck:

Maple neck with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard plays like a dream with excellent action and playability. The fingerboard shows minimal wear, but the original frets had some rust/corrosion before we had them sanded and redressed. Without taking too much off of the original frets they are looking considerably better. Back side of neck has de-lamination of the finished through to the heel that is pictured. This is not a crack.

Body:

Almost blemish free with exception to two rear bass bout cracks that are no longer moving. The finish is absolutely clean  with a very tight weather check pattern.

Hardware:

All hardware is original and in great functional condition. Open back tuners work with ease.

Case:

Original Geib case is included in sale. This is very clean and has very little wear. The handle has been replaced.
